The main purpose of my stop-motion video is to have a more kid-friendly way to spread awareness of the ocean and climate change. The idea behind my stop-motion is that algae is falling from the ice. Some species of algae cling to ice, and when the ice melts, the algae falls. This can create more consequences. Also, the reason why there is so much algae in the video is that when ice melts, sunlight can shine on the algae much more easily, which causes algae to bloom earlier in spring. This can cause populations of fish and later-hatching zooplankton to go hungry and populations to dwindle.
